    Pros

    4 weeks paid vacation, affordable great benefits, positive work environment.

    Cons

    Hard to advance to other careers within Travelers. Micro managed on how time is used. Always have to watch what is said and done because big brother is watching every move made. In the sales department, it seems that calls are routed to select individuals, while the majority receive really bad calls with less opportunity to sell and bonus. Also different tiers where top performers receive more calls than others. The playing field is not the same for all which is wrong from an ethical standpoint and decreases morale for many of the sales rep's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Half of you do not have any sales experience & the one's that do need to stop pushing us to sell on value when we are $1k higher a year. No one cares about value with the bad economical times. If we want to provide value, lets make our product affordable and stop being so greedy.

    Pros

    The people at Travelers are wonderful. No one hesitates to drop their work to help others, even if they are not on the same team or division. It always felt like a community environment than co-workers.

    Cons

    Seeing how it is generally a conservative company, ideas that are "outside the box" tend to not be very receptive, especially with people who have been in the company for a long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase marketing because the brand awareness is not there, even though it is such a great company that offers great products.
